Fix for Lip Sync wdtv gen 1 AVI

open the avi file in Avidemux, left Video and Audio on “Copy”, changed “Format” to MKV, and save it. No more sync problem on the WD, and no re-encoding involved. Choose yes to unpacking, when you do the save make sure you put in the file name plus extension .MOV The whole process takes about 2 mins for a 1.6GB avi. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AviDemux http://www.avidemux.org/admWiki/doku.php?id=general:faq

Has anyone tried this?  Does it work?

Don’t know Bill… none of my .avi files have ever exhibited a problem and needed any “fixing”.

Other than the compressed header issue, I’ve not really encountered any “supported” files that don’t play properly.
